On Wednesday's it's "Big Band night" at the Elephant club. Professional jazz musicians from the local scene assemble and perform originals and standards. Thirteen musicians including trumpets, saxophones, trombones, piano, (real) bass and drums were jamming when we stopped in. Here is a sample:
The other 2 clubs were equally impressive, and the restaurant scene is also very good (we especially enjoyed Uchi and Sway). Austin is a place that we definitely want to return to.
